Hwy 2 & Hwy 55 Prince Albert, SK
I understand why all the truck traffic is re routed from highway 55, through the overheight route, to hwy 2. However, at some point with all this truck traffic trying to cross 4 lanes of traffic, someone is going to get killed. I thought as soon as the city got the cameras working on the overpass that the regulation height trucks could start going under the overpass again. But this has never happened and trucks are still forced to use the overheight route. I see how that bridge can be easily hit, but a little better set up for overheight trucks would come close to solving the problem. If one truck did try and sneek under and he was overheight the camera would catch it, thus making that guy pay the bill to fix it.
Having all the truck traffic cross that busy highway is just a resipe for disaster. I know many truckers who refuse to travel that road because of that detour.
Save someones wife, father, or kids from being killed and let the regular (under hieght) trucks go under the bridge instead of crossing the highway.
All it takes is a truck to get part way out and spin out on ice to cause a serious accident.

A three way stop needs to be created in front of wal-mart and Front Runner footwear as it is almost impossible to turn left or right when hitting that stop sign heading north past Tim horton's, Arby's, Urban Planet, & Circuit City due to the high levels of traffic heading eastbound and westbound in front of Wal-mart and front runner footwear!

You can't see where the lines on our city streets are. They should be starting to paint them on now not in September when the most of the traffic is no longer going through our city. And for are new drives learning in our city they have no clue where to be with no lines on the streets.
15th St And 6 Ave E 2nd ave and 15st w, Prince Albert, SK
Is it time Prince Albert has double turning lanes?? particularily on 2nd Ave and 15th ST West and then on 6th ave and 15st East , these intersections are becoming so congested I think we need double turning lanes to help traffic to keep moving !!
28th And 1st Ave East Prince Albert, SK
Can someone explain why the city blocked north bound traffic on 1st ave off 28th east. Other than congesting traffic at the lights on central worse than it was and making 2nd ave east busier, i dont see the need for it.
Central Avenue Prince Albert, SK
I have recently noticed that the speeds in which people have been travelling on Central Avenue seem to be escalating. While I am doing 50 which is the posted limit those who were at the stop sign ahead of me take off like a rocket. I would hope that police start following through with Traffic Enforcement instead of letting the crazy drivers own the roads.
1st Street East Prince Albert, SK
Tuesday I was leaving my driveway at 8:30 am when the graters were out clearing the street. Thinking they were clearing the ruts and maybe moving snow to avoid flooding, I was surprised when I came back and saw how they left the street! If it wasn't 6:30 I would have been expecting them to come finish the job. It was better before they started. Not only are there no spots to park but the snow is spread so far out into the street it is makes driving dangerous. The city's response: we have to pay to have the snow moved but we never asked to have it put there plus it is blocking half a lane of traffic in some spots.
563 Laurier Drive Prince Albert, SK
The residents of Laurier Drive are now dealing with a mess left by the so called Snow Removal Crew from the City of Prince Albert. Our sewer drains are still plugged with snow, yes the ruts are gone down the middle of the street but that is where we get to park now since they filled up the sides with chunks of ice. We spend all winter keeping parking spots open in front of our homes, today we get to park in the middle of the street in front of our homes. It is basically one lane traffic and I am not sure how the Garbage Truck on Monday morning is going to get around the parked cars to collect the garbage. Called City Hall and was told someone would be contacting me about this mess. Put it this way, I am not holding my breath for that to take place. Glad to know that my tax dollars are well spent making more of a mess then cleaning one up.
Would it be possible for the traffic coming from the north to use the left hand lane on the bridge so the traffic merging onto the bridge could actually get on the bridge, instead of waiting forever. Most times there is only the right lane of the bridge being used. If you are trying to get onto the bridge 10 minutes to or 20 minutes after the hour it is hateful. Some of us time our entrance onto the bridge when there is the least traffic. Not everyone has this luxury. Move over, it's not that hard. Thank you
